Adani Green Secures USD 400 Mn For 750 MW Power Projects Adani Energy Acquires Essar’s Mahan-Sipat Transmission Assets

Adani Green Energy Ltd (AGEL) has announced USD 400 million in financing for its under-construction projects. Through this financing, the company extends support to its under-construction 750 MW solar projects in Rajasthan and Gujarat by a consortium of five leading international banks.

The consortium of lenders is financing Adani’s projects that are expected to come online from November 2024 onwards. One of the projects is being developed in Rajasthan with 500 MW capacity and has a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI). The second one, with 250 MW capacity, is a standalone merchant power project being implemented at the world’s largest RE cluster at Khavda in Gujarat. With confidence in the evolving merchant energy market, AGEL is diversifying revenue streams, along with traditional PPAsto enhance project revenue and position itself as favorable for sustained value creation.

Following AGEL’s lead, banks are becoming more comfortable with financing merchant projects with the transaction marking a sentiment shift in the international banking market. The USD 400 million construction facility along with the funding solutions also provides the syndicated guarantee-backed assurance program in sync with AGEL’s procurement strategy.

The transaction paves the way for a sustainable debt structure, developed as part of AGEL’s capital management plan, for financing merchant exposure. It marks a milestone for the Indian RE sector as it steers the industry’s transition to the next phase of market integration, with the commitment to deliver low-cost green electrons through the promotion of merchant market projects with the right financing structure demonstrating overall trust and competitiveness for the Indian renewable energy sector to drive the clean energy transition and decarbonization.

The consortium of lenders – Cooperative Rabobank U.A., DBS Bank Ltd., Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A., MUFG Bank, Ltd., and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation – paves the way for AGEL’s ambitious growth plans. The green loan, housed under subsidiaries of AGEL supports the company’s growth trajectory and aligns with its commitment to sustainability.

Second-party opinion provider Sustainable Fitch highlighted the robustness and transparency of the 750 MW Solar Projects Green Loan Framework and alignment with the four core components of the Green Loan Principles, 2023. The assessment favors AGEL’s dedication to green energy solutions, accelerating India’s transition towards a lower carbon future while achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy). AGEL has a 10,934 MW operational portfolio, the largest in India, delivering reliable, affordable, and clean power to the national grid.

AGEL’s operational portfolio consists of 7,393 MW solar, 1,401 MW wind, and 2,140 MW wind-solar hybrid capacity. Latham & Watkins LLP and Saraf & Partners were the borrower’s counsel. The lenders’ counsel were Linklaters and Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas.
